    You had an amazing gift of making friends with whoever you met. People tend to judge others from their appearance. You taught many a very good lesson. You were a kind, generous, caring and genuine person. You will be sadly missed by all who knew you. You were not here for a long time…. but I am glad that you had a good time! I am sure there will be a shot glass filled with Cuervo floating around up there just for you! “Slainte”

    Rest in peace Shawn <3 Our workplace will never be the same now, I will so miss hearing "hey, hobily wobily). Although I haven't known you "forever" it feels like I have, you have an awesome ability to make everyone smile. I will still look for your truck at Rene's when I go by in the morning. Thursday morning as I was driving by, saw your truck and yelled "hey Shawn you slacker, get your ass to work". You would have laughed at me. We are taking very good care of Rene for you, you would be so proud of her. We love you, Shawn. With wings, anything is possible

    To Shawn’s family and friends, I am very sorry for your loss. The Bible holds out a reassuring promise that “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus'] voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) What a loving provision from God! May you find much comfort and strength from this trustworthy promise. (Isaiah 55:10,11; Revelation 21:4)
